Courses that Fulfill the Requirements for the AA&S Degree in College/University Transfer

  1. All BRCC requirements and electives must be selected from the courses listed below. Any course taken that is not listed will not count toward graduation requirements unless students complete and have approved in advance a “Program Adjustment Form.”
  2. Please Note: BRCC’s degree requirements do not necessarily fulfill the general education requirements of the college to which you wish to transfer unless there is a specific articulation agreement to that effect. Currently BRCC has such agreements for its graduates with many state-assisted and some private four-year colleges and universities. Many of the courses listed below do not transfer to every four-year college or university. It is the student’s responsibility to:
    1. Check with a BRCC advisor,
    2. Consult the transfer guides of four-year colleges and universities,
    3. Look up transfer requirements on the college website and/or
    4. Check directly with the four-year institution to which one intends to transfer, in order to determine if particular courses transfer.
  3. Students are responsible for ensuring that prerequisites have been met before registering for any course. Consult the course descriptions in this document for further information.
